Happy Monday! It’s finally summer so let’s start out with Ashley’s question about celebrity color.

Hi Michael,

What’s the most popular look that celebrities are asking for now since we are into summer?



Hi Ashley,
I appreciate your email.  A lot of people want to copy celebrities looks and I have to warn you that what a person’s color looks like under lights and with Photoshop is probably much different than how it would appear if they were walking down the street.
Many celebrities are going over the top blonde and that causes severe breakage. A ton of stars are wearing extensions because of the damage.
With Jennifer Aniston we have altered her color three times.  Once for Living Proof, once for the Aveeno layout and once for the commercial.  All three are different colors and when color is done correctly it is easily maneuvered with no damage.
We changed her color from caramelized golds to light golden to sandy blonde. It’s all done in the sinks with special Canale color enhancers. 
Make sure that you go to a very skilled colorist if you want to go lighter so that you don’t damage your hair and end up having to get extensions too.
Anyone can send in questions so please email me at michael@livesofstyle.com
Until next Monday!
